    1/6 Berserk Guts Berserker (wolf) Armor version custom figure WIP

    After taking a break for a couple of week, I started working on the New Berserker armor version. This will be my 2nd and last Berserk Custom figure.

    For the head, now he is older than Black armor period, so his face got longer with partial white hair. Also this time, his body won't show much skin, so I'm gonna focus more on the motion range and pose-ability. My goal is to get the crouched sitting pose like the statue image in the middle. Color scheme will be a little more blue than black knight armor.
    I want to add LED light up in the helmet, but I'm not sure if there will be room for it ..


    To maximize the articulation range, I'm cutting some surface parts from the base body. Now he can do the sitting pose while touching the ground with one hand.


    New face sculpt with more aged face (WIP). I'm also using the duplicated back head parts from the 1st one with some modification. I came up with a new way of making better eyeball for 1/6 scale figure as well


    After measuring the face/head, I made a simple structure of head armor and adding shape using epoxy clay.
    Also checking the size to the head as I build it.
    It will be recast in resin after the shape is complete


    I'll try to update the WIP once a week (like last time), but my job can go crazy anytime, so I can't guarantee it..

    Ohhhh my God. I know you don't take commissions, but I realllllly wish I could get one of these from you somehow. This would be my number 1 non-movie grail figure!!!!!!

    Also, I'm sad to see you say this will be your last Berserk fig. I was really hoping to see Griffith Reborn from when he came back. Would be awesome to see with Guts. Any plans on what you're going to make next now that you're moving on from Berserk?

    That motion range test pic with the crouching pose looks great!
    Nice if HT Spiderman had that range of articulation!

    Re: 1/6 Berserk Guts Berserker (wolf) Armor version custom figure WIP

    Now that I don't have any base armor to work on from like last time, I'm scratch building all the armor pieces.
    I'm building the chest armor, thigh armor parts, neck, hand armor and shoulder armor parts (non-articulated parts) out of epoxy clay and resin. The rest will be brass like last time.
    Here is a quick update on thigh armor and chest sculpting (WIP)

    I'm trying the 'Apoxie Sculpt clay' instead of my usual Epoxy putty. Still getting used to it, but it's pretty good for base sculpting. It takes longer to harden than the other thou.

    Here are the Chest base armor pieces (WIP). As I need to make this into 2 pieces wearable on top of HT base body, I'm making back and front shells for mold making.

    And here is update on head armor + Neck armor.
    Using Epoxy putty, I'm refining the details. I also built the back neck parts out of brass plate. Now it can expand/contract as well as bending about 90 degrees. To get the curves and edges nicely, I made the plus and minus mold frame out of resin, and pressed the plate in between. (frame made out of left over Indy head )
    I'm using 1.2mm screws instead of rivets this time. It's difficult to use hammer/rivet setter on curved tiny pieces... (and also it's easier to assemble/disassemble as i need)


    Also worked on the lower front armor (codpiece)
    Made out of 4 pieces.
    All brass pieces will be 'gun-blue' treated later together to be dark blue/black!

    Hopefully I will have all the resin armor pieces casted by next update

    Can't wait to see this progression, never see enough Berserk customs, but when you d they usually come out great because they're a true labor of love.

    Re: 1/6 Berserk Guts Berserker (wolf) Armor version custom figure WIP

    After some struggle, I made the armor shells for the chest and legs. Because they are going over the base body and the thickness needs to be thin enough and relatively constant, I barely got them after 2-3 tries for each parts..

    I was going to do some Putty work and sanding after spraying the primer, but I realized that the surface will be scratched left and right while doing the metal work, so I stopped - and the surfaces are still rough :P


    The chest armor is made of front and back 2 resin parts + 3 layers of shoulder armor. These layer pieces are moving along with shoulder/arm. So I'm testing different axis and pivots for better motion range.
    Also made the resin parts for head armor and connected the back head cover with screws.


    I was going to use resin parts for the foot armor flex area, but I couldn't get the good motion range. So, I replaced them with metal links and got the good range I wanted.
    The upper leg and the knee armors are resin and connected via metal links for best motion range. this part needs to bend around 180 degrees..


    Did some fitting test on top of thin leather pants. Still I lost about 5 degrees of motion due to the pants thickness.. I guess I need to sand out a little more from the base leg.


    It looks like I'll be doing the similar work for the next couple of weeks.
    I'll start shin armor, ankle armor and the belly/back armor next!
